Napoleon was a masterful ruler. He established a number of reforms that brought peace and stability back to France. He also rewrote the old French feudal laws, which were confusing, creating a new Napoleonic Code of laws that were much clearer. Many of these laws remain in France to this day.

By 1812, Napoleon controlled most of Europe, either directly or indirectly.
